Kick-Ass 2
We know the sequel to Kick-Ass is happening in comic format. Actually, it already began in the upcoming release of Mark Millar's CLiNT magazine
 
The good news is, it looks like we can indeed expect a live-action sequel as well. Bleeding Cool reported that Mark Millar was a guest on the Richard Bacon Show on BBC Radio Five Live and shared some information. 
 
Millar said that due to the sales estimates for the UK release of Kick-Ass on DVD (based on US sales), the movie should end up making a quarter of a billion dollars. The movie basically made a lot of money and cost very little to make. According to Millar, the movie has been greenlit. 
 
In other Millar related news, apparently the director for Nemesis is going after Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp to star in the movie. Good luck. 
 
Is the idea of a sequel to Kick-Ass, kick-ass news for you?

I haven't seen teh first one, but maybe they'll get a bigger budget!

I still have not seen Kick-Ass, but I am suprised there's a sequel 'cause #1 didn't make much money. Although, I suppose it didn't cost much either...

I haven't seen the first yet, maybe on DVD. Was it any good? As for Nemesis, it is too early to talk about a movie in my opinion. I mean how many issues have been released so far?

It's a movie tailored for an audience that doesn't pay to see movies.

=( it saddens me to see all these people haven't watched the first yet. >_> go watch it.
 
oh and Yay =D looking forward to it

#12 Posted by ReverseNegative (2729 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, Kick-Ass 2 is on the way. Who would Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt be playing? A couple of cops? Cause they ain't fit to be Nemesis.

"Do we start milking now?" The Farmer asks.

Kinda hoping they get a different director. I watched it over the weekend it was ok, not great, but I think my main qualm is for whatever reason the director would just linger on punchlines. It sort of felt like someone telling a joke and then saying "get it?" The fight scenes were good though.

I really enjoyed both the comic and the movie. I hope the 2nd movie is even better

#19 Posted by Duo_forbidden (1160 posts) - - Show Bio

It sounds interesting. I enjoyed reading the comic and watching the movie.

#20 Posted by Moomin123 (2205 posts) - - Show Bio

the first one was so awesome, and with the original guys returning for it (hopefully), the sequel will also...kick ass.

Another movie based on Millar material he hasn't even had printed yet? Fun. Though, what can they possibly base it on? There were major differences between the initial series and the movie.

#22 Posted by Mediant (329 posts) - - Show Bio

Just the news I've been waiting for. I've very interested in where the second volume will go. 

#23 Posted by daken_2513 (416 posts) - - Show Bio

Kick Ass 2 has been greenlit and Nemesis might star Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp, epic news!

What is with all these so-called "comic book fans" that haven't see Kick Ass yet? People, it's in the Red Box for $1 rental! It's ON DEMAND for cable companies across America to rent! Netflix has it for rent! The movie is still playing at most dollar theaters. I can understand if you live in a foreign country and they haven't released it or released it on dvd, but at least check out some of the scenes on You Tube. You owe it to yourself as comic book fans to see this movie. It's a fun ride and a good break from all the Dark Tights and Iron Men movies.  
 
I'm personally looking forward to Kick Ass 2. The script idea sounds great too. I could care less if they don't get a bigger budget. I simply hope they make it as great as the first.

I liked the movie and all, but there is no way this movie is making "a quarter billion dollars" after DVD sales. Just not happening.

Guess they'll have to cast a new actress to play hitgirl. The origional is already too grown up for the part.

I know I'm way behind on this, but is Kick-Ass 2 ONLY available in CLiNT?

#43 Posted by hydro 300 (148 posts) - - Show Bio

Great ! Loved the first part!

#44 Posted by Just Endless (9 posts) - - Show Bio
@The Mighty Monarch: Nope. And there's only like 8 pages in Clint this month anyways, so I imagine your best bet is monthly comics. Personally wondering the ship date for that, though.
#45 Posted by Eyz (3095 posts) - - Show Bio

Hollywood loves Mark Millar! I mean, they're adapting every sing one of his recent works now!

#46 Posted by The Mighty Monarch (2188 posts) - - Show Bio
@Just Endless:   It's just strange that the Marvel site has solicitations for Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall #2 but not for #1.
#47 Posted by Aspenite (892 posts) - - Show Bio

But please let him finish the comic first!

I will pass on the murderous, foul-mouthed, little girl movie number 2.

It could easily do it, cult movies like Kick-Ass often make most of their money through DVD sales these days, just look at the Hellboy series.
